We Originate From a Long and Proud Maritime Tradition

Our History

Our journey began in Bergen in 1884, when Joachim Grieg founded his shipbroking firm. Globally, he played a significant role as an entrepreneur. He developed international contacts and trades, and enabled Norwegian shipowners to participate in international businesses. By doing this, he created the foundation of what the Grieg Group is today, a global business with more than 1600 colleagues.

As a family-owned business we know that there is more to life than business, and we are proud of our commitment and tradition of giving back. In 2002, we established Grieg Foundation which receives 25% of our surplus. Since the start, our foundation has donated 805 million to people and projects. By giving back we are making a difference – this is our way of engaging.

Our future depends on healthy oceans, the health of the ocean, our planet and humanity are inseparable. Our purpose clearly defines our responsibility; We will restore our oceans because only by doing so will we be able to contribute to improving the lives of future generations. Our ambitious targets and bold decisions can make the global economy reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Within the Grieg Group we are dedicated to do everything we can to lead the way.
